I also feel that it is from around the turn of the 20th century, maybe a little earlier. The bottom is still attached, but is coming apart, there are many missing stitches on the outside, and just a hand full on the inside, rim stitching is complete. The outside measures 57″ around at the widest, the top opening is 14″ and it stands 14 tall. Photo’s #2 though #6 show the outside with 5 figures. Even with the damage, and slight lean that it has caused by the bottom being damaged, this basket displays well. Please enlarge photo’s as they are part of the description.
